Junk Museum

with Thomas Mailaender

This workshop, directed by Thomas Mailaender, was aimed at students in the second year of their Bachelor's degree in Photography. The students were immersed in the art of physically constructing an image and its presentation device. The idea was to broaden their artistic horizons through an awareness of installation, scenography and sculpture. The creative atmosphere of the workshop was enriched by a bold touch, where the singular smell of waste added an unexpected sensory dimension, transforming each creation into a unique exploration. Thomas Mailaender challenged the students to push the boundaries of photographic creativity. The project then took the form of an exhibition in Chavannes-Près-Renens. At the heart of this immersive experience, images were projected, hung, cut and superimposed, giving rise to unique, innovative and immersive works.
